Probably because theres a lot culture-swapping between North American and Japanese culture, if only in terms of food, and animation, and some social trends, so theres bound to be more interest in a student who went to the U.S. Also, the U.S is a very easy country to portray, since nearly everyone in the world knows about it, and has an idea of what its like there, so the writer does not have to explain anything past 'they went to America.' Instead of having to get inventive.

maybe because we (americans) are one the main consumers of anime (outside of japan) they might think including america in the anime would make it appeal to us more....kind of like flattery


err i think your right. but i kinda prefer the japanese obssesed with american stuff and vice versa, kinda make sense i think

First off, America is the biggest melting pot in the world meaning it probably has the second largest population of Japanese people outside Japan itself.

America is the strongest power house in the world at this point.

People see America as a place of freedom and a new start so it is often used in this state in animes.

People no where America is. And in most animes that i can remember they would usually end up going to France and not America. I probably have to watch more anime.
